The Start of a Bubinga Pen
After a long long hours in front of the computer screen dealing with project deadlines I started a pen with a Bubinga front section. Nice change of pace to finish off the day. Bubinga is a very dense wood that requires a very sharp tool to shape it. If the tool is dull the wood easily burns up.
The colors from left to right are Purple Heart, Yellow Heart, Wenge, Birdseye Maple, Wenge and Bubinga. This one is going to be quite beautiful with a thin tapered end.
